:don't worry...be happy. (Sorry, couldn't help that one). He' he'.
:I'm sorry to hear that he dropped his tail. But from what I know, it is a very natural thing for them to do. In the wild it will distract a preditor long enough for the cresty to escape. But does "Jesse" still look cool? (I bet he's got the "ruggedly handsome look," now). Ha ha.
:And since he is still so new, maybe it's time to re-name him. Something like:
:Barney. (Like the scaredy "Barney Fife" from the Andy Griffith Show - cuz he got scared and dropped his tail).
:Spooky. (Cuz he got "spooked," and lost his tail.
:Kerplunk. (Cuz his tail went "KERPLUNK" when it dropped).
:OK, OK...enough of that! But seriously, I wouldn't worry about it. It's just something that comes with the territory of owning a cresty. Remember...you are "STAR-MOM". The Rhac forum "Honchess Supreme Being"!!! (So get your blue leotards, your red cape, and head to the nearest telephone booth to change clothes and see what you can do to keep "driving-on")!!!
:I do empathise with you, and still wanna see pictures of your new additions. I bet they are ALLLLLLL awsome!!
:And once again...sorry to hear about his tail.
:In Christ: Raymond
:: My oldest Leopard gecko, Neo, recently had a freak tail-dropping as well. I just looked in his humid hide one morning and part of his tail was just laying there. I took him to the vet and we still don't know why his tail fell off. Just put some neosporin on the stub (make sure its regular neo. not the kind w/pain reliever!) and watch out for infection. If you notice anything wrong w/him, consult a vet.
